Apollo Tyres is taking a major step towards sustainability by developing passenger vehicle tyres made with 75% sustainable materials. The company, which had previously produced sustainable Agri tyres, is now working towards making sustainable mobility solutions a reality.

The newly developed passenger vehicle tyres are composed of bio-based and recycled materials, making them highly eco-friendly. The tyres have been manufactured using a range of featured compounding ingredients in different components of the tyre, including natural rubber sourced from suppliers who are committed to sustainable sourcing practices and traceable to specific plantations, in accordance with the company's sustainable natural rubber policy.

P K Mohamed, Chief Advisor, R&D, Apollo Tyres Ltd, expressed confidence in the tyres, saying that they had cleared regulatory performance requirements and will now undergo extensive road evaluation under typical operating conditions. The tyres were manufactured at the company's latest and most modern manufacturing facility in Andhra Pradesh, located in the south-eastern coastal region of the country.
